THE STORY:

I'm so so psyched to be running the Boston Marathon this year with Team Running for Cover, fundraising for the Melanoma Foundation of New England. I'm running in the memory of my grandpa Bud - who lost a hard fought battle with Melanoma in June 2013. He was the greatest guy in the world, loved nothing more than talking running and fitness, and would be THRILLED to know I'm finally tackling the Boston Marathon for such an awesome cause. (Admittedly, it's also a ploy to get my grandma Irene to travel up to Boston in the spring.) 

Quick refresher on Melanoma: It generally starts in a mole and is one of the deadliest forms of cancer BUT is also highly curable if caught early. 

To that end, MFNE's mission is to reduce the incidents of melanoma in the New England region through education, prevention and support. MFNE hosts a range of educational programs to spread awareness. These programs include Your Skin Is In, a program teaching high school and college students the dangers of tanning, and The Skinny on Skin, which teaches beauty professionals to recognize potential melanomas on the head, neck and scalp of their clients.

Team Running for Cover is running the 2015 Boston Marathon to raise funds to support MFNE's mission. All funds raised will be used to fund and expand these educational programs throughout the New England Area.
